Synopsis

Swiss boy Jean Amsler is inconsolable when his mother dies. His father is also in mourning, but eventually remarries a woman who already has a daughter of her own. Neither his father nor his new stepmother understand the depth of Jean's grief, or the hurt that the various changes to the household are causing him. Finally, Jean plays a trick on his stepsister, hoping to get her into trouble - but it goes horribly wrong, and she nearly dies. Jean's remorse is met simply by his parents' brooding silence and contempt; and eventually, feeling unloved and rejected, Jean decides to run away...

Remarkable, very psychologically astute and 'modern', superb central performance by Jean Forest. Also quite formally daring -- pioneering use of rapid cuts, as in Abel Gance's La roue and Napoléon.
